Paralegal Learning Improvement Plan

<< Back to Paralegal

Outcome 1: Identify the areas of law and concepts that apply to a fact situation.

Impact of Previous Year’s Plan: Baseline Data

New Improvement Plan: Because the current success standards were met, the teaching methods I’m using, which include Blackboard, LexisNexis Academic Database, Lecture, the Publisher’s online course companion website, Guest speakers, YouTube videos, movie and tv-show clips, in-class discussion, student role playing and competitive group work will be continued for the next assessment period. Due to student success and the fact that the majority of these methods mentioned can be used online, the data would support the potential for the development of on-line courses. The improvement plan includes an on-line offering of this course. Discussion of the improvement plan will need to include the American Bar Association and the VU Paralegal Advisory Committee. Professional Development in on-line course development and implementation will be necessary and technology to support on-line courses will be necessary.
